Knee arthroscopy in iran is defined as a surgical procedure which is used to diagnose problem in the knee joint and treat the same. During the knee arthroscopy procedure, the surgeon creates a small cut and inserts an arthroscope with an attached small camera that helps to view the knee area.
The procedure helps doctors to view the inside of the joint on a computer screen. Therefore, if there is any problem in the knee, the surgeons can correct it by viewing the monitor and with the hep of small instruments that are inserted through an incision.
Knee arthroscopy surgery in iran is required for the treatment of posterior cruciate ligaments or torn anterior, torn meniscus, dislocated patella, torn cartilage left loose in the joint, removal of Baker’s cyst, fractures in knee bones and swollen synovium. There can be several knee joint problems that are best treated with the arthroscopy procedure.
Before the Knee arthroscopy surgery in, the patient is required to talk to the doctor about any kind of medication he or she is taking. The patient may have to stop taking other medications and also stop having food 6-12 hours before the surgery. In some cases, pain medications are prescribed. During the knee arthroscope procedure, the doctor numbs the knee and also numbs the region from waist down and put the patient completely to sleep.
1.Cruciate ligament repair
This is usually done when the ligament has broken off from the bone but is still intact. The ligament is reattached to the bone and held in place. If the ligament is only partially torn the surgeon may sew it back together so it can heal.
2.Cruciate ligament reconstruction
This surgery involves replacing your torn cruciate ligament with graft tissue. The graft can be created from soft tissues around your own knee or from donor tissue. If other structures in the knee have been damaged, such as the meniscus, they’re repaired at the same time.
The surgeon will remove any debris (torn bits of cartilage) in your knee and sew up tears in the meniscus. The aim is to preserve as much of the cartilage as possible. If the tear is unrepairable, the torn fragment may be removed – this is known as ‘meniscectomy’.
Chrondroplasty is performed to smooth out or remove torn pieces of cartilage. After the cartilage is smoothed out or removed, small holes may be created in the underlying bone to stimulate growth of new cartilage. This is known as ‘microfracture.’
5.Removal of loose fragments
Sometimes a bone fragment may cause pain and affect your ability to move your knee. If so, the fragment can be removed arthroscopically.
Excision or release of tight structures (lateral retinacular release)
Removal or release of tight tissues on the side of your kneecap (where the thigh muscle attaches to the outside of the kneecap) can help to improve its movement and to relieve pain over the kneecap.
Other reasons knee arthroscopy may be performed include treating infections or removing inflamed synovial tissue (a thin layer that lines the joint and produces lubricant to help it move smoothly).
The actual surgery time is usually about 30 minutes. If extensive work is needed, the procedure may last up to 45 minutes. Most people “go to sleep completely” during surgery with a general anesthetic. Some have surgery with a spinal anesthetic.
Three or four small incisions are made to allow special instruments, including a fiber-optic camera, to be placed into your knee. Sterile saline (salt water) is brought into the knee joint continuously with tubing to provide a clear view for the surgeon. Torn parts of the meniscus and/or damaged cartilage on the bone surfaces are carefully removed with special arthroscopic instruments. The end result is a knee lined with smooth and stable tissues rather than rough edges.
Everyone heals from their knee surgery at a different pace. If necessary, patients use crutches or a walker for one to three days after surgery. If your pain is minimal then you do not have to use crutches or a walker. Once more comfortable, most people are able to walk with just a slight limp within five days after surgery. Some people find a cane to be helpful. If you use a cane, place it in the hand opposite the knee that was operated on.
It takes up to six weeks for the knee joint to re-establish normal joint fluid after arthroscopic surgery. Because of this, you may not realize the benefits of your surgery for four to six weeks. There is a high degree of variability in recovery times. Some patients are able to return to regular activities within two weeks, but most require roughly six weeks before they can resume full activities – including sports – comfortably. Reduction of pain and swelling and improvement in strength, motion, and coordination may continue for three to four months.
